This commissioned piece is a 24×36 acrylic on canvas. I got contacted by a customer who requested an original similar to my (older) Blue December piece. I got very excited at the opportunity to relive the process of painting a grouping of flowers! However, I made the plants and colors a little bit different because I wanted this new piece to be unique. I enjoy creating these floral compositions just as much as I enjoy working on cityscapes. Actually, painting tangled organic forms provides a nice compliment to painting linear, rigid buildings – so these two opposites work quite well in balancing out my “painting brain”.
Here are the progress shots of Blue Floral commission:
…And, after a request to change a few stem colors to be more muted – here it the completed piece along with some detail shots! I am quite happy with the result, and the piece was a pleasure to work on.
